"Everybody's Dick Is Getting Bigger" and Other Thoughts Richard Kind Has on Poker

RichardkindRichard Kind, the comedic actor and occasional poker player, unleashed "A Few Thoughts on Poker" as a guest blogger today at the HuffingtonPost.com, a site that is almost always painful to read and is run by that annoying boob of a woman Arianna Huffington.

In his post, Kind makes a case for making poker halls "more plentiful" and claims that "[t]elevision has ruined the home game."

"Everybody's dick is getting bigger, and the bloodlust to take someone down includes the hope of greatly increasing your fortune," remarks Kind.

It's worth the read even if Kind is really just pimping his new poker-themed film The Grand, which may or may not be the best poker movie to come along since The 40-Year-Old Virgin and which we broke huge news about almost a year ago when we reported that Keeley Hazell was not starring in it.

GrandscreenshotTo refresh your memory if you're too lazy to click the link above, the Zak Penn-produced/directed/penned Waiting for Guffman-like mockumentary on the poker world stars Woody Harrelson as One Eyed Jack Faro, a degenerate pokerer who attempts to save his dead dad's hotel-casino from a real estate developer by taking down the world's most famous high stakes tournament, the Grand Championship of Poker.

Joining Harrelson in the cast are enigmatic German director Werner Herzog, Gabe Kaplan, Shannon Elizabeth, Michael "David St. Hubbins" McKean, Dennis Farina and a bunch of past Celebrity Poker Showdown-ers including Cheryl Hines, David Cross, Ray Romano, and Mr. Kind.

The Grand premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday, April 27, and apparently is one of the festival's hottest tickets, having sold out advance tickets.
